Ascot Tips February 13


Ascot Value Bet - Race 4 No. 7 Living The Dream

This is admittedly a tougher challenge for the son of Artie Schiller but with perhaps a little more upside than a few of these that are coming out of the same event a fortnight back, he can strike in what isn't an overly strong race.

An ex-Victorian now under prepared at Lindsay Smith's Western Australian base, Living The Dream showed at least Melbourne city class potential over his first few campaigns, but the early 2020 preparation was awful and he was sent west as a result.

He's steadily improved with each outing for the new yard and now with that confidence boosting win, comes to town in-form and his ability to sustain a long gallop off a slow tempo will come in handy if this gets tactical, where he's only half a kilo over the minimum from a suitable wider alley.


Ascot Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Beat The Bro

After finishing outside the placings in his first two career starts, this very honest galloper didn't miss the top three in his next 10 outings and following a string of five second-placed finishes in a row, got a much deserved second career victory at Pinjarra on December 28.

The catalyst for that win did was the step up to 1500m following a close miss over seven furlongs, where he was strong through the line at the end of that trip and it gave every indication that the mile journey would suit on January 9, but he had no luck as a well backed favourite, racing in restricted room in the run home. 

Beat The Bro was then freshened-up, resuming last week at Pinjarra where he was strong late in a hard run 1400m affair while now stepping to the 1800m, finds a thin race and as a galloper that just continually shows up, he deserves a third career win here.


Ascot Best Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Western Empire

Dropping from the mile to 1400m and given they did have the 1800m of the Kingston Town in mind, I'll forgive his defeat as favourite in the Listed Lee-Steere on December 5, where after leading, was dour late against the turn-of-foot of Kissonallforcheeks, who he meets again here.

Out of a Perth Cup winning Jeune mare in Western Jewel, this Bob Peters three-year-old looks as though he'll get over at least 2000m in time and off a little spell, got a kill out the way via a Bunbury Maiden where he beat nothing, but it was solely a launching pad for this.

With a potential Australian Guineas tilt for Western Empire, he would have to be performing well in this 1500m feature, if not winning to warrant that and with a little more maturity now while rising in distance, rather than coming back in trip, gives him every chance to turn it around on his main threat.


Ascot Roughie - Race 9 No. 13 Chesten Flyer

An honest galloper from the Adam Fairey yard, Chesten Flyer is set to resume this Saturday over the 1000m at Ascot and although he's yet to record a first-up victory, he should've via his last fresh attempt on October 10 but had to settle for a luckless second-place finish.

Travelling strongly just forward of midfield on that occasion, the six-year-old saw nothing but backsides in the straight before finding the narrowest of passages around 50m out from the line, where he launched late but just missed behind Chantorque, who won her next two including the Listed Placid Ark Stakes.

The form again stood up through Miss Frost, who he defeated home there and on October 31, with that mare coming out of that to win the Listed Jungle Mist Classic via her next outing, so considering those strong references and a good lead-up trial, he's a decent each-way price here despite being scratched a few weeks ago.

Ascot Races FAQs

Can I watch a live stream of Ascot Races?

Yes, you can live stream all the action from the Ascot Races. 

You can find more information via our live streaming section.

When do Ascot races take place?

Ascot is one of two circuits in Perth used for the main racing in Western Australia and it generally hosts two meetings a week thoughout their designated period. It is recognized as Western Australia's major racing venue.

Ascot is the summer track and they split the Perth Races with Belmont who take over in the colder months.

Where can I bet on the Ascot Races?

To place a bet on the Ascot races you'll need to be signed up with an online bookmaker. 

Generally corporate bookies provide betting markets a day prior to a Wednesday meeting at Ascot and around two days before a Saturday or feature program.



On a tough Ascot program for a standout, we'll go the way of Western Empire in the Challenge Stakes (Race 8) as the best of the day.

Both Living The Dream (Race 4) and Beat The Bro (Race 5) make some appeal in their respective events.

Chesten Flyer is huge odds in the last but is an each-way hope in an open race.
